Israel practices anti-African racism:Submitted by Tuskeegee on Thu, 12/27/2012 - 18:00
An analyst says Israel’s discrimination of African Jews is not a matter of political reasons but indicates the ‘deep-rooted Anti-African racism and prejudice’ which is prevalent in the entity.
In the background of this, Israel has been rounding up and deporting Jewish refugees of African descent since June 2012 and is now building one of the world’s largest refugee detention camps in the Negev desert. Israelis have said that some 60,000 people have come from the Sudan region in the past few years to immigrate into Israel which is just too many.
Press TV in its Africa Today program has interviewed Esther Stanford-Xosei from the Pan African Reparations Coalition in Europe about this issue. Joining her is Femi Okutubo, Editor in Chief of the Trumpet Newspaper, and Richard Millett, journalist, both from London. The following is an approximate transcription of the interview.
